[ romney ] i'm mitt romney a west virginia casino launching the biggest ad barrage ever. don't be misled. the washington post says questioneven is just... common sense. it'll create 4,000 permanent jobs. and stop maryland from losing millions to other states... every year. that's why business, labor, and teachers all support... question seven. and so does the washington post. vote for question seven. it's just common sense. is sandy? >> the big story for our region as the rain. s in green, this is the flood watch. a good time line of when the rain will arrive. 9:00 p.m., from now until then about 1 inch will have already fallen. heaviest rain during the day tomorrow and a compound that of 50 milesp boards per hour and we could be looking at 5-9 inches of rain by the time this system moves on out of here. this is where they're really, t hard, a lotto hi of beach erosion. outything should clear oning through the day wednesday. thursday and friday, but tomorrow and tuesday be a half-hourto or three h
turned down their structure for four years ago, and obama, romney, because of the primaries, couldn't put as much focus on that. i think that is a disadvantage on election day. >> chris: there is clearly -- has clearly been movement in the polls, nationally and in the swing states towards romney, especially since the first debate, early october. how do you read the race, at this moment? >> well, let's assume that everyone is right. ohio is the linchpin in the whole thing which i think is a reasonable supposition at this point. you have a set of national polls, to include gallup, and rasmussen, that show romney with a 4, 5, 6 point lead, depending on which poll you look at. there will be another one out tomorrow and this is a bipartisan poll, whi is a solid poll, reliable poll and will show romney up 5, inactionally. and, in the battle ground... no, battleground poll is the name of it but it is a national poll. if those polls are generally correct it is difficult to imagine that ohio would be all that different. ohio has pretty closely tacked the national outcome for, since about 1960. so,
"washington post" poll shows president obama with a four-point advantage over mitt romney. it's a -- a change certainly over the 1-point lead romney enjoyed there last week. heading northward to pennsylvania, the president has a six-point lead in this new poll from the "philadelphia enquirer." ho romney's gained growned since early -- ground since early october. and finally ohio, ohio, ohio, the mother of the battleground states. the four-point advantage to obama. the latest cnn/orc poll. you have the polls and numbers, but we want to hear directly from the voters. we sent the cnn election express on the road to take the polls of voters in some of these key swing states. we're calling it the battleground bus tour. and we have cnn political contributor john avalon joining me bright and early on this sunday. fancy meeting you here, friend. what, ali velshi couldn't -- >> good morning, brooke. >> you couldn't wake alli velsh up to join you? >> this morning i drew the short straw, all good. early a.m., lexington, virginia. >> team player, appreciate it. tell me what do you at the town hall you ho
to the realization he's not the man to lead us for the next four years and mitt romney is. host: we have been talking to the chairman of the republican party in mecklenburg as part of our battleground 2012 series. we've been looking at north carolina today. thank you for being on the program. >> form ch tomorrow on "washington journal" we look at the early voting in several states. then we'll take a look at pennsylvania. . "washington journal" live at 7:00 eastern live on c-span. >> good afternoon everybody. complex storm and complex geographical area to cover and i'm going to let the experts tell you about the storm. what fema is doing is preparing for the coastle impacts of this storm and preparing for power outages and winter storm. and if you think about winter storm with a hur cane is unusual, trust me we're going to be dealing with a lot of weather over a large area. that's why we're urging the area to prepare for a variety of hazards and we're encouraging them to take the time to get a plan. we have teams in place or have moved, in some cases we are still recovering from prior decasters and th
is four percentage points. basically, it has narrowed a little bit. there was a swing towards romney about net two percentage points. the last poll, just after the first debate, this is sort of edging up with obama having a steady lead. it is a democratic leaning state these days. there has not been an awful lot of campaign activity in terms of visits by the candidates or advertising. they have now really targeted the state this year on like 2008 in the last previous four cycles. host: there has been an awful lot of advertising in the senate races. your polls are showing that the senate race has been considerably closer. he is still holding onto a slight lead, seven points over republican tom smith. what has been happening in that race? caller: is a simple matter if you spend $17 million of your own money, you can get hearing from people. the senator is a member of an institution that is not really very popular these days, the congress. smith is gaining traction just on the strength of his message. and introducing himself to voters. that could be one of the surprises on election night. hos
they waited as long as four hours to cast their ballot on saturday. >> president obama and mitt romney are cancelling campaign events in states affected by sandy, including several in virginia. governor romney was scheduled to make three stops in virginia today. instead, he'll campaign in another hotly contested state, ohio. the president is cancelling a monday event in northern virginia and leaving for florida today rather than tomorrow. the vice president and first lady have also canceled some events because of weather. >> the time right now is 9:27. computer models show sandy will likely make landfall north of the d.c. region. >>> coming up, we'll take you live to the jersey shore to check out conditions there. teacher: this is west virginia, pennsylvania, delaware. and this is maryland. every year marylanders spend five hundred and fifty million gaming at casinos in these other states. question seven will build a new casino and bring table games to baltimore... generating hundreds of millions for schools. and that money has to go to education. it's the law. so vote for question se
in the lead by four points but a fox news poll conducted last week has mitt romney ahead by two. keep in mind both leads are within the margins of error. in the past three elections voters here in virginia have picked the winning candidate so it's clear the road to 1600 pennsylvania avenue may run straight through the state of virginia. it wasn't all that long ago that virginia was better known for its civil war battlegrounds than its political ones. for ten straight presidential elections the republican candidate came out on top, but then in 2008, virginia voters went for barack obama. >> virginia! >>t was interesting because he kind of road tde the wave and h swayed a lot of districts that had been traditionally republican. >> while the 2008 vote here closely mirrored the rest of the country, virginia has actually fared better economically. its unemployment rate is below the national average from its fast growing washington, d.c., suburbs to the huge military presence around norfolk, a lot of government tax dollars flow into the state. but, like a loet of the nation, virginia has experience
it is that ohio is number one in the midwest and number four in the country? in terms of romney, look, what i want out of a president is stability. look, small businesses get paralyzed. if they don't know what the regulations are or the taxes are going to be, if they don't know what they are going to do with debt and what the people in washington are going to do, they sit on the sidelines. i want certainty. i think there's ways to get an agreement in washington. it doesn't have to mean higher rates. it can mean lower rates. >> governor -- >> they will grow. what will we get out of him? a movement toward a balanced budget. stabilization of taxes and for some, a tax cut. regulators that use common sense and not overdue it. we have strong regulations on oil and gas. the toughest in the country. we don't overdo it. when people understand certainty, they invest. this is not theory. i was in business for ten years. we had a lot of people that had never been in business their entire lifetime. they don't understand it. i do understand it. when they are confident of the future, they can invest. there's a l
with senators from four key swing states. republican rob portman of ohio, who played president romney in the debate represent and 18 electoral votes are in play en a state obama won in '08, by 4.6 points and now leads 2.3 points in the latest real clear politics average of recent polls and republican ron johnson of wisconsin, 10 electoral votes at stake and obama won by almost 14 points, last time, and, is now leading by 2.3. and democrat mark wa of virginia, obama won its 13 electoral votes by 6 points, four years ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country, and the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris, first of all, you mentioned the real clear politics average in ohio, 2.3%, in the president's favor and now it is 1.9%
up four senate seats to gain control. if romney wins they need to pick up three. >> all politics is local. this year may be no politics is local. a national trend. all of the marginal states tip the same way. but the republicans going in, defending only ten seats, attacking 23, it should have been easier for them than this. >> andrew sullivan, so much discussion it turns out on rape with aiken and mourdock. >> that's interesting. will the republicans interpret their results in the senate with the function of them moving way far to the right. in interpret that, there might be hope. i'm supporting president obama to keep the republican party from being completely insane. but, mourdock and aiken are the lead stories. >> nicolle, aiken may cost them a senate seat in missouri. >> probably will. >> there's this senate seat in massachusetts. >> she's not so crazy. vote for president obama and vote for me. folks involved in the senate race on the national level it's working. it's tightened her race. the other thing about connecticut is when our lights go out they stay out. it's like, you
had at 206, 206 to 201, now 191. and let's turn now to of romney who needs to win north carolina. he is still up in the polls by a significant margin, but four points. yesterday it was more than five. we have that. romney would need also to win, just as before, the state of florida, 29 votes. let's get that. and he is up two points in florida. he also needs virginia where he is up by one point. let's go there. he is building 248. colorado, whereoth candidates are tied up right now 48-48. we will give that to governor romney as well. we will move that into his column, 257. president obama right now is up by two in iowa, what the purpose of this scenariowe will assumed that governor romney wins. i'm sure you won't argue. he also needs nevada where president obama right now is up by two and a half points. we are giving that to governor romney. see how this scenario plays out. the president would have to take the state of michigan where he is up by four points. let's give those 15 points to him. wisconsin where he is up by two. this is one of the most -- obviously one of the most importa
at the community level. this isn't what the central government does for people. >> narrator: romney served four years as a bishop and many more as a senior mormon leader. then he decided to turn to politics. >> the reason mormons do get interested in public service comes out of a sense that we have a mission. >> narrator: for romney and other mormons, america holds a special place. >> i think romney has a deep commitment to the united states and to the americas, because mormons do believe it's a holy land and honor the constitution as coming from god. >> we believe that the united states of america is that place that had to be free so that god could bring truth back to earth. and we revere it for that purpose. >> and joseph smith even alluded to the united states constitution being... its framers being inspired, the constitution as an inspired document, not quite scripture but somewhere in that league. >> narrator: some mormons say mitt's political ambition may be connected to his faith. >> the kingdom of god is to be built on earth, and we all are to take part in doing that. so when somebody s
that mitt romney's a bs'er? >> he wants four more years. >> he's created more racial division than any administration in history. >> oh, come on. come on. >> oh, come on. let me go to joy on this thing. i know i pushed this point, but every day it becomes truer. every day you see the thread collected, the language used, the way they talk about the president, not as a democrat, not as a liberal, not as someone they disagree with, but someone about whom the very person is wrong for the office somehow. what do you think they're talking about? endlessly. >> exactly. and this is about over and over again tweaking the archie bunker crowd. this is about that angry guy, we all known him in the neighborhood, because, look, if this was just about barack obama or his policies, colin powell wouldn't magically get sucked into it, too. we wouldn't be hearing sarah palin talking about shucking and jiving. how much more obvious do they have to be? this is about trying to run up romney's numbers among low information blue collar white voters, particularly older white voters who are already uncomfortabl
] the exact same rights. just picture the supreme court after four years of president romney. ladies and gentlemen, they have made it clear that they also have a different view on foreign-policy. when we entered iraq, they said bishop of kept 30,000 troops -- when we ended the war in iraq, they said we should have kept 30,000 troops there. they refused to commit to an end date. and they openly opposed a signing of an arms control treaty with russia that other republicans urged that we ratified. now the governor is running away from everything he said in the last year and a half. the congressmen is running away from everything he voted for. i am not making this up. this is real. ladies and gentlemen, they are now abandoning the central tenet of their party's agenda. the accounting on the american people to have an overwhelming case of amnesia on november 6. all of a sudden romney claims he does not hea $5 trillion tax cut that will raise taxes for the middle-class to the president has a new term for it, he calls a what? romnesia.' it is the most accurate term i have heard in a while.
shows the race in virginia is getting closer. president obama leads mitt romney by four points. 51% to 47%. president obama, a nod from "the new york times," the paper's editorial board is endorsing him for a second term. and mitt romney, another endorsement of his own. "the des moines register" supporting the republican nominee for president. joining me now, deputy political direct for for "the washington most," anne cornerbl blue. i do want to tell you that it was not a pretty picture as i was getting miked up and finishing makeup. i was on the phone with rick green of the vice president and editor of "the des moines register." they are not putting him out here today to elaborate on their decision and why they came to this decision to endorse mitt romney, he did tell me, bottomline, it was a lot of discussion. that newspaper believes if you look had 40 years from now, a thoughtful, long-term approach to make a robust economy. they felt mitt romney got the nod that way, and governor romney had a better set of tools to break through the gridlock in washington, d.c. a lot of specula
minutes ago. president obama hanging on to a slim four-point lead in the commonwealth over governor romney. according to the latest "washington post" poll. joining me on the state of the race. jo anne reed, managing editor of the grio who was supposed to be with us in florida. >> i'm jealous. >> the latest poll, alex. "washington post" poll, president obama leads about 51% to governor romney's 47%. back in september, the president had a stronger lead, 52% to 44% in virginia. why do you think the governor has been able to close the gap in the commonwealth? >> i think just like you see nationally and a lot of other swing states, after a first debate performance in early october for governor romney. he managed to show people kind of a different face than they had seen in a lot of negative advertisements or depicted by president obama and a lot of his allies. you've seen him gain nationally in a lot of swing states just like in virginia. the question is, have enough momentum now to put him over the top and that's kind of the question that everyone is asking themselves nine days out from the el
'm asking you to compare my plan with governor romney's. i want you to know what we're proposing, each of us and see which plan is better for your. >> four years ago then candidate barack obama spoke about big things. but now he's reduced to talking about small things. he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. >> reporter: while early vote is under way in several states the threat of hurricane sandy is throwing both campaigns in to disarray. governor romney and running mate paul ryan were forced to cancel events in virginia and instead turn their attention to ohio. the state that's looking more and more like a clincher. brian mooar, nbc news, washington. >>> do you know what's in the food you eat? supporters of proposition 37 say it will help m form people and today they held a rally at a farmer's market in san francisco. >> this is a critical time for transparency in our food system. you may have seen advertisements about prop 37, saying that it will hurt farmers and today we have some farmers here gathered to tell you this claim is not true. >> a new group calling itself farmers for

to step up to the plate to help other countries in times of need had these four characteristics. a moral compass, a bedrock of principles, of vision for the country and the ability and experience skills to execute the vision by working with people. that is exactly what mitt romney has done throughout his life. that is the kind of governor and businessman he was, that is the kind of leader he was and that is the kind of president he is going to be a. . [applause] but it's bigger than getting more jobs in zanesville or janesville. it's about what kind of country we are going to be. when you think about it, america is so unique because we are an idea. we are not just a country with a flag. we are not just the badgers' first as the buckeyes, which is after the election. -- the badgers versus the buekesy. we are not wisconsin-ohio, thomas jefferson wrote in the declaration of independence.

four years of president romney. ladies and gentlemen, they have made it clear that they also have a very different view on foreign policy. when we entered the warren arrived, they said we should commit 30,000 troops -- entered the war in iraq, they said we should commit 30,000 troops. they refused to commit to an end date in afghanistan. his national security adviser -- urged be ratified. the governor is running away from everything he said in the last year-and-a-half. the congressman is running away from everything he voted for. i am not making this up. this is real. ladies and all men -- ladies and johnson, they are counting on -- gentlemen, they are counting on the american people -- ladies and gentlemen, they are counting on the american people to have an overwhelming case of bemis on november 6th. all of a sudden -- case of amnesia on november 6th. the president has a new term for it. he calls it romnesia. all of a sudden, he does not have a five trillion dollar tax cut. congressman ryan, the guy whose budget cut everything 19% across the board, the guy who pledged to voucher

at the economy and worry that it will not get better. mitt romney is saying we do not want four more years like we have just had. president obama is saying we do not want eight years like we had under george bush, and everybody agrees with both of them. but where do you go from here? >> the analysis of what governor romney and his campaign has to do is absolutely right. his campaign has to work on the ground game. likely scenarios -- are not saying probable, but possible is for mitt romney to win the popular vote and barack obama to win the electoral college. we had that once before 12 years ago. vice president gore got about half a million votes and governor bush. but people forget that john carey had 71,000 more votes -- if john carey had gotten 71,000 more votes in ohio, he would have won the popular vote and by 3 million puritan -- 3 million. >> simply because of ohio? >> because of ohio. i think it is a possibility that governor romney will get something like 271 and lose the part of the vote. a goes to the question of whether we should have an electoral college at all. for the obama folks
four years. how much does this hurt? >> they endorsed romney in the primary. this isn't much a surprise. it was surprising to read that editorial, but it wasn't based in reality. not just in the president's record but in mitt romney's record. it said that romney would reach across the aisle, but it would be the exact opposite. over the course of running for president over the last six years, he's never once stood up to the far extreme right wing. just this past week, we saw it, when he wouldn't take down his ad for richard mourdock. he's not willing to stand up when it matters. so, the fact that he's going to bring people together is just nonsense. in terms of newspaper endorsements, you know, we feel pretty good where we are. this morning, brings the miami herald, the pittsburgh postgazette, the "new york times." the toledo blade. youngstown vindicator. i feel good. there is movement out there with people wanting a second term of an obama presidency. we feel good where we are. >>> finally, the impact of hurricane sandy. we have seen president obama cancel trips to virginia and ohio. ho
, that the worst is over, if he can convey that effectively. governor romney needs to continue to persuade voters that obama has had his four years, it's time for new leadership. they're both making that case and it's really about getting those voters who have made up their minds or who are really close to voting for one or the other out to the polls. >> what about the undecideds? we keep hearing about the undecide undecideds? is there a particular populace there in ohio? >> it's about 1%. >> so the northern part of that state is one that would traditionally vote more republican. it seems as though according to some of your polling and some of the articles that that is the portion of the state that is leaning toward romney. but that's also the portion of the state that's heavy on manufacturing of ships and cars, especially since obama has been getting a lot of credit for helping to save the u.s. auto industry. that doesn't seem to make sense. >> right. well, actually, the northern part, especially the northeastern part is traditionally democratic. the northwestern part has been democratic, but if
